An Aquila power plant in Cass County Missouri could be on the verge of being torn down. A Cass County attorney Debra Moore and many Cass County residents claim the plant was built illegally and violates zoning regulations. The plant claims it went through the proper channels and is backed by the Missouri Public Service Commission. The Missouri Court of Appeals ruled against Aquila, but the final decision most likely will come from the Missouri Supreme Court.

In 2006, an invitation was put out to the Youtube community to take part in making a statement about global unity. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxqNsUbWlHc). The idea was simple - write something on your hand and show it to the world.
The result was phenomenal - tens of thousands of people responded with videos and comments, in what seemed to be a flood of globalised ideals. The combined effort of these responses was condensed into 'The Message' - four minutes of hope, purity and togertherness - the likes of which had never before been seen on the internet.

I stumbled upon this site not so long ago and happily gave an ecofriendly gift. This is a great alternative during this highly consumerist season. My favorites are the goat and lemur programs that give to people in third world countries while at the same time fostering ecological stewardship. Not a new idea but certainly a novel one. Please check out Conservation International for more, or look up local charities this season as well, or perhaps even instead of buying a plasma screen in the new year, think of donating some. Americans realy are the most charitable people in the world, and the holiday season is the perfect time not only to tell someone you love that you care but also to show the world that you do and work to make it a better place whether with a monetary donation or with your time and care. God Bless, hoping everyone had a merry Christmas, and will have a bright new year (when of course you loyal Current fans will be tuning in for the ever ecological Radiohead and their new performance of In Rainbows exclusively here at Current!)
